At Public Inquiry we successfully demonstrate rigour by careful evidence-based design, carrying this thinking through to development completion.
Bourn Airfield, near Cambridge
Development at Bourn Airfield, near Cambridge. South Cambridge District Council have Resolved to Grant planning permission for this long-term strategic project (19th February 2021). This proposed new settlement involves 3,500 dwellings, three schools, community and mixed-use buildings, employment and workspace barns, environmental and infrastructure works. This is a landscape-led masterplan but also concentrates on the urban design of neighbourhoods, the centre, streets and spaces, landscape and the form of development so that the current and historic landscape will form part of the future character. The Second World War runway is to be retained as an important legibility and recreation space. Rummey Design has worked on the project since 2012, producing key masterplans, and is delighted to have been involved since then as part of a team to achieve this result.
